Renting an apartment in a complex Tikaytasha 17 kids; New York 11503 posts

How long did it take you to get approved? We dropped our paperwork off on Monday and the lady said it typically takes two days to hear something. I'm assuming with the holiday this week that's what is holding it up but I just wanna knoooo already so I can stop stressin it!!

I heard back in like, 10 minutes. But it was a really large complex (like, they owned 10 different complexes so they're a HUGE company) and they do approvals right away.

I guess they said a few days because there was so much paperwork they needed to go through, references to call, etc.

And they needed to do credit checks and whatnot on both my SO and I.

It took 20 minutes when we moved into a complex. Two days seems like a long time.



OT: but I HATED living in an apartment complex.

We had to do a credit check and background check and they did it while we waited.

I think two to three days was the longest we waited, but I'm sure the holiday this week has them delayed.

I agree completely! It took a week for them to get back to us, they are so lazy about repairs and whatnot and the place has become a dump because they aren't cleaning the common areas very often anymore.

Call them back on Monday morning. They should have answer for you by then.

Quoting ★Bαtgirl:" Same here, it's terrible. We were lied to about the safety of the area too, so we're moving in 2 weeks to a nice little house. We just need to find a fridge and a stove. *fingers crossed*"


We needed to find an apartment from the other side of the country and the place looked nice in pictures. It took a year and a half for them to replace the sink, the windows aren't sealed properly and our balcony door is on backwards so there is a gap that we have to stuff full of weather stripping to try and stop the draft. It was also supposed to be non smoking and no pets but is neither of these things.



Now we've been here over 2 years and stuck until we pay off the rest of our debt because DH is self employed and some months are better than others.



We got screwed so bad but they haven't raised our rent so SO wants to stay until we're debt free:roll::roll:
